The ghostscript-8.00 section of the blfs book doesn't mention the need
to unpack libpng, jpegsrc, and zlib sources when ghostscript is built,
(or give a URL for more info). Of course, the issue might not arise all
A build (of lilypond's web-doc) failed when ghostscript said "Unknown
device: pnggray". A little checking suggests that *no* png devices will
be built unless the libpng *sources* are available when ghostscript-8.00
is built, (cf.
So I tar-xvzf'd libpng (and jpegsrc and zlib) under
/usr/src/ghostscript-8.00, renamed them as requested, and reinstalled
ghostscript. Now lilypond builds web-doc.
